Kenshandra Mitchell - Class of 2020
Before law school
I graduated with my masters in criminal justice from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) in May 2017, and I got my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice there in 2015. For the past two years, I worked was an administrative assistant for UTC’s Student Support Services.
Why WVU Law?
I was awarded the WEB DuBois Fellowship to come to WVU Law, which helped me a lot financially. WVU Law was also appealing to me because it’s a Top 100 law school, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it here. I felt like it was the right choice for me.
I am interested in both criminal law and corporate law. I don’t know exactly what I want to do when I finish law school, but I am drawn to those two areas of practice so far.
In 10 years…
Hopefully in 10 years, I’ll have landed my dream job, whatever that turns out to be. I would really love to go back home to Tennessee and work, but if I’m offered a job somewhere else, I’ll be happy relocating. I hope I will be comfortable and secure in my life, and maybe I’ll start a family.
Outside of law school…
I tend to focus a lot on my studies and my schoolwork. I like to watch TV a lot, though. I love “How to Get Away with Murder” and anything on the Investigation Discovery Channel.
